New York (March 31, 2011)–Waves Audio has issued the OneKnob series, a set of seven effect plug-ins, each controlled by a single knob.
Aimed at home recording enthusiasts and audio industry professionals alike, the OneKnob Series includes OneKnob Brighter, OneKnob Phatter, OneKnob Filter, OneKnob Pressure, OneKnob Louder, OneKnob Driver and OneKnob Wetter. The company describes the plug-ins as:
OneKnob Brighter – “An intelligent treble booster that adds brightness from the mid-high range on up”
OneKnob Phatter – “Phatter is a bass booster that provides a quick way to add bottom, weight and body to bass, keys, kick drums and vocals alike, to thicken them in the mix.”
OneKnob Filter – “Filter is a powerful sweepable filter with switchable Resonance modes.”
OneKnob Pressure – “From light, parallel-style compression to pumping and squashing, Pressure is a versatile dynamics processor, ideal for percussive sources.”
OneKnob Louder – “Using a combination of peak limiting and low-level compression with automatic makeup, Louder effectively makes tracks louder, increasing RMS by up to 24 dB.”
OneKnob Driver – “Inspired by famous guitar overdrive pedals, Driver is capable of everything from light overdrive to full-on distortion.”
OneKnob Wetter – “From short, bright ambiences that are felt more than heard, to longer, darker spaces, Wetter adds instant depth to any track, creating the perfect atmosphere.”
